Good morning all!


I have an unusual question…maybe. 


A relatively old screw-cap amber bottle (wide mouth) was brought to my attention this morning.   Inside is what appear to be rounds of filter paper that have been cut into approximately 2cm squares. Some of the are yellowing at the edges.  There was a label on the bottle, but it has long since faded.  Does anyone know if these would indeed be just filter paper (vs. self-made test strips of some sort, etc) and they possibly could have been used for?  I’m at a loss as to why they would have been kept.


Sorry for a obvious lack of information, but any sugggestions/ideas would be appreciated.
